In support of this year’s Sunshine Coast Art Prize, John Gallagher, Founder and Director of Argon Law is driving a BMW X5 SUV featuring artwork from one of the finalists titled 'The Old Men' (Michael Nelson Jagamara). One of three art cars driving around the Sunshine Coast to pay homage to the iconic BMW Art Car project, a long-running art series introduced in 1975 by French race car driver and auctioneer Hervé Poulain. By taking such striking artworks off the gallery walls and onto these vehicles, we are putting art out amongst the broader community and drawing attention to the Sunshine Coast Art Prize.
Thank you to Coastline BMW for providing these cars.
